Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-20-13  Karpova: <Mr. F. G. Janssens, a Belgian by birth, died in London on the 28th of December, aged 59. His name appears frequently in the 'Chess Player's Chronicle', when the late Mr. Brien was the Editor, 1854-56; his last public appearance, so far as I am aware, was in the match between the St. George's and City Clubs last March, when he was pitted against Mr. Minchin, lost one game and drew the other.>

  MissScarlett: Bury & Norwich Post, February 14th 1860, p.2:

<At the monthly meeting of the Trustees of the Guildhall Feoffment, on Monday last, on the recommendation of Mr. Torre, the Head Master of the Commercial School, Mr. F. G. Janssens, a native of Belgium, was appointed to the Second Mastership, with the duties of the department of modern languages. The testimonials of Mr. Janssens, who has had many years experience in English schools, were of highly satisfactory character.>
